San Diego Union-Tribune

San Diego County small businesses will be able to save 12 percent on health insurance premiums for their employees if they buy coverage next year from the state’s newly created health exchange, officials announced Thursday. Covered California, the state agency tasked with creating and running the new health insurance exchanges mandated by the Affordable Care Act of 2010, released selected rates for many California regions that it says are less expensive than those now available to businesses with 50 or fewer employees.
